Can 21st-century molecular biology answer age-old questions about the human experience? Can studying proteins and DNA help us understand how we make our choices in sex and love? Where our emotions come from? Or why we age and die?

In Sex, Love and DNA, award winning scientist and science writer Peter Schattner introduces readers to the astonishing world of proteins and DNA. Based on the latest scientific discoveries, Sex, Love and DNA uses stories of remarkable people who don’t feel pain, are born with super-strength, or have other unusual abilities to illustrate how biology affects all of our lives. Written in clear, simple language that anyone can understand, Sex, Love and DNA will show you how science is revolutionizing our understanding of what it means to be human.
